The majority of women in the WWE in The Attitude Era, The Ruthless Aggression era, and the start of The PG era were seen as eye candy. The ladies weren’t given any importance in comparison to the big male stars of the company.

In addition, they were used as managers and escorts to Superstars and special guests. They would compete in matches like bikini contests and bra and panties matches. If not anything, women were used in romantic storylines.

The only women’s main event in the Ruthless Aggression era was Trish Stratus vs Lita. There were many instances where divas had complained that they would be preparing backstage for their matches. Just five minutes before, a WWE official would tell them their match was off the cards.

However, things changed in 2015 after a social media outburst. The #givedivasachance made WWE look back and think about their women.

The change has been fruitful to WWE. The women were now female or women superstars and not ‘Divas’. The company and fans saw many talented women who came to the roster and are still coming.

There was Evolution, an all women’s PPV. However, The cherry on the cake was a women’s main event at WrestleMania 35. Becky Lynch would defeat Ronda Rousey and Charlotte to capture the RAW and SmackDown Women’s title at the showcase of the immortals.

On the newly started RAW Underground, Blayze saw something which she didn’t like and felt that took WWE a step backward. She would make her feelings known on Twitter.

The gender equality topic is not short and definitely a one that will stay for a long time. Madusa, in the context she spoke, was bang on correct.

However, WWE hasn’t forgotten about the women’s revolution. This week on RAW Underground, The Queen of Spades Shayna Baszler was in action. The cage fighter destroyed two other women.
